Jøtul's origin dates back to Kvaerner Brug which was founded in 1853 outside of Christiania (now capitol Oslo).

Jøtul Group is a world leading Norwegian manufacturer of fireplaces and wood stoves. We have subsidiaries in Denmark, USA, France, Spain, Italy, the UK and Poland and we market our products in 43 countries on six continents under the brands Jøtul, Scan, Atra, Ild and Warm.

Production in Norway takes place in Fredrikstad and Halden, while foreign production plants are located in Vissenbjerg in Denmark, Portland in the USA, Motz one Chautagne in France and Gdansk in Poland.

Jøtul Group has an annual turnover of about EUR 90 million and employs about 700 people internationally.

Jøtul can look back on a more than 160-year-long history. It all began in 1853 when the merchant and farmer's son Oluf Onsum founded Kværner Jernstøberi at Loelva east of Norway's capital, which was called Kristiania at the time. Kværner started as a manufacturer of cast-iron goods, where cast-iron stoves were one of the most important products.

In the years leading up to 1900, the company established one of the largest stove foundries in Norway and sold its products throughout the country. In 1916 the stove production was sectioned out from Kværner Brug and sold to Herman Anker. Anker continued to build the company until it was sold again to Johannes Gahr in 1927. Gahr led Jøtul into a period of strong growth and in 1935 the company received its present name, Jøtul.

Through the years Jøtul demonstrated a remarkable ability to adapt to changing market conditions and when the company was sold to Norcem in 1977, a new era with international focus started. In the middle of the 1980s, additional steps were taken to expand globally through a number of acquisitions of foundries and import companies in the US and Europe. For a while Jøtul was listed on the Norwegian stock exchange, until it was purchased by private equity in the early 2000’s. Today Jøtul has the world’s largest distribution network for stoves and fireplaces and is one of the highest sought after brands in the stove and fireplace industry.

The parent company in the Jøtul Group, Jøtul AS, is a Norwegian company. It has strategic and governing responsibilities as regards the subsidiaries and maintains group functions for all subsidiaries and brands. The headquarter is located in Fredrikstad, Norway.

The majority owner of the Jøtul Group is the Swedish private equity conglomerate AB Ratos. The Jøtul Group management holds a minority post. Ratos shares are listed on on Nasdaq OMX Stockholm, Large Cap.

Ratos’s business concept is to generate, over time, the highest possible return through the professional, active and responsible exercise of its ownership role in a number of selected companies.

Thoughts on Energy


Miljøvennlig og økonomisk!

Tenn på toppen

Det riktige er å fyre veden fra toppen.

Den nye fyringsmetoden baserer seg på å dekke bunnen av ovnen med en vedstabel og tenne på fra toppen. Da vil man halvere partikkelutslippet fra skorsteinen, samtidig som veden blir utnyttet langt mer effektivt. Når veden i bunnen av ovnen varmes opp, vil den avgi gasser som utgjør halvparten av energien i veden. Disse gassene vil antennes når de kommer i kontakt med flammene i det øvre laget. Tenner man på i bunnen vil gassene fortsette ufortrødent oppover i pipeløpet og ut i atmosfæren. Det er veldig mye å spare på å tenne fra toppen, både for miljøet og for lommeboken. Når veden avgir blå flammer, er det et tegn på optimal forbrenning. Gule flammer inneholder mer sot og partikler.

Se animasjonfilmen fra Norsk Varme hvordan du sparer både miljø og penger på riktig opptenning.
